we are off to buy a cockbird to day there is a market about 14 klm from us so we are going to see what we can find and then one day I might be showing you some new chicks but that wont be for a while as the hens havent started to lay yet.

Good luck in finding a suitable cockrel - two of my hens are laying now but Im not going to let George my silkie cockrel become a dad as I dread to think what a mish mash the chicks would be silkie/rhodestar I dont think it would be a good combination.

How soon might your hens start laying?
